This one better not be listed as a FS! No way it is no matter what PCGS says IMO of course.

Grade it looks nice not amazing but nice a few marks here and there I'll say MS66+

Quote:
Full Steps (FS) is the designation following the numerical grade of some regular-strike MS60 or higher Jefferson nickels that have at least five separated steps (lines) at the base of Monticello. Any major disturbance or interruption of these steps or lines, whether caused by contact, planchet problems, or another source, will result in the coin's not being designated FS. Only the slightest weakness on any step (line) is allowed for this designation. Some issues are almost never seen with Full Steps and may command a significant premium.

Yes, but what years should have 5 steps and what years should have 6 steps and what years should have 7?

Appears to be a solid MS66. The light gash on the cheek/jaw isn't helping. Is that a light scratch in the vicinity of Jefferson's hairline?

Just a note: The proofs are expected to have full steps, so when they do it is no big deal. It is the MS ones with FS that are the more rare ones.

I'm at MS66 as well, not FS, but more steps than commonly found on that date. Very nice coin.
